Borgar Magnason - Come Closer


I can always appreciate a dreary, meditative ambience that has semi-jazz and neo-classical inspiration peppered throughout it. In this case, it’s the 9 minute long track, “Come Closer” from the Icelandic composer, Borgar Magnason.

This spectacular piece has a very brooding atmosphere throughout the song. The airy notes that circulate in the background give imagery to a cold winter night. Somewhere above this atmosphere is the plucked sound of a double bass that gives the song a noir jazz sorta vibe.

Though a 9 minute song might seem a bit long for some of you, it quickly goes by and only leaves me wanting more. It’s incredibly easy to get lost in this wondrous track and I look forward to playing this on another cold, snow filled night here in Norway.
